Report: Cubs Likely Moving To WSCR-A (670 The Score)/Chicago
October 22, 2015 at 12:08 PM (PT)
The official word has yet to come down from the station or the team, but right on the heels of the CHICAGO CUBS' exit from the NATIONAL LEAGUE playoffs last night, ROBERTFEDER.COM is citing unnamed sources in reporting that, as widely expected, the CUBS radio broadcasts will move from CBS RADIO News WBBM-A/CHICAGO to sister Sports WSCR-A (670 THE SCORE) for next season.
The CUBS' seven-year deal with CBS, signed before this past season, gave CBS a one-time right to move the games from WBBM to THE SCORE, and the move of WHITE SOX games from THE SCORE to crosstown CUMULUS News-Talk WLS-A for next season opened the door for the CUBS to move down the dial once again. Before the CBS deal, the CUBS had been heard on TRIBUNE News-Talk WGN-A.
CBS RADIO CHICAGO SVP/Market Manager ROD ZIMMERMAN would not confirm the move to FEDER but said a final decision is coming “probably in the next 30 to 45 days.”
